Hiya folks,
My first post here. I've only been playing doomRL for a week or so (only won on HNTR so far). I'm an old-time ADOM player though, and love doomRL.

Anyway, I got fed up of having to re-steer the target X when firing round corners, so I made a little utility that would let me do it with the mouse.

This only works if you play doomRL in a window, in windows Vista (will probably work for other OSes, but hasn't been tested), using Lucida console 24pts non-bold font.

Provided you play it in those conditions, this little program will make the mouse work for targetting. double-click the .exe, and you'll get a little S in your system tray to tell you it's running. Simply left-click on the doomrl screen to fire a shot at that location, or right-click to reload.

I'm posting it here because I swear I saw a few people mention wanting mouse aiming, and figured this could be a decent solution for some users. I find it indespensible, so I'm already happy, and if anyone here gets joy from it, I'm a double-happy camper.

Here's a download link:
(modified as per Aki's suggestions)

ps. If anyone wants notes on how to modify it to work with a different OS, different font, etc, you can send me a PM and I'll talk you through it - it's not too technical. :)

pps. Sorry for double-posting this. I tried to delete the post in the 'request for features' area, but I couldn't.
